Cluster-forming cocci

Staphylococcus pasteuri
(bacterium incl. MRSA, VRSA)



Typical representatives: Staphylococci are the most common cluster-forming cocci.

Staphylococcus pasteuri is a coagulase-negative, Gram-positive bacterium of the Staphylococcaceae family.

Coagulase-negative staphylococci may trigger wound and urinary tract infections as well as chronic prostatitis and bacteraemia in immunosuppressed patients.

Due to many resistances to antibiotics Staphylococcus pasteuri is of clinical importance.

Main transmission path probably is direct or indirect contact with contaminated persons or objects.
